Buyer is trying to scam me. Beware!


#1

I have on sale Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and it’s from bundle with my laptop from intel.
Today the buyer " Daniel Vakili " buy the item and opened dispute. I checked the key (link for redeeming) and i was copyed the link with some intel link in the beginning, i was my mistake and i quickly deleted the first part with the intel url and give him the correct link. Just to understand it was like this “https://softwareoffer.intel.com/Redeemhttps://profile.callofduty.com/promotions/redeem/bo4/bundle”.

After i give him the correct one with a screenshot that the key is working, with this sesponse code from call of duty redeem form:
“This Call of Duty acoount has already received this bonus content using another code. Be sure youi are signed in to the correct Call of Duty account. If you still need help, please go to http://support.activision.com/
As i already had it on my account i cannot redeem the key but i can check if it’s still working. He responded that the key was alredy redeemed and send me picture with some weird response code from the redeem form:
“This code has already been redeemed.”

I was like hmmm this is weird let me check the code again, and i got a verry different response from their from:
“The code you entered has already been used to redeem this bonus content. Please look for your content in the game. if you still need help, please go to http://support.activison.com/

Тhen I realized that he is trying to scam me. After that i got even further, i make myself a new account in call of duty website and connected it to new battle.net account, then i used the code.
And what i got is this response code:
“The code you entered has already been used to redeem this bonus content. Please look for your content in the game. if you still need help, please go to http://support.activison.com/

What a shock, he was using the console from his brawser and change the text to what he wanted.
Please don’t let him get alaway with this, the admin can check what am saying by just creating some new account in call of duty website, also i can provide clean one if you don’t have the time.

PS. All of the evidence are in the conversation with the buyer.

Thank you very much for your understanding. My problem was resolved successfully after the intervention of the Gameflip support. My faith in you is not mislead once more. Also am happy that one more scammer is out of our community.
I decided to post my problem here so you guys know what to expect in future and possible how to protect yourself (screenshot everything and make ton of videos for evidence).
The truth is that because of my mistake with the link i was able to see the response code from “Call of Duty” redeem form and i was able to detect the scam, otherwise i wouldn’t be able to and he would get the game and his money back. It’s sad that it’s very easy to be scammed these days.

Anyway just wanted to say my thanks to the supports, and wish to them and all people of our good community Happy Holidays :).
